Q&A with Elinor Cherin, whose small tattoo means the world to her. She is a current senior at Monument Mountain and will be attending Pace University in the fall. She is an aspiring actress and her tattoo is just one way she expresses herself.

Q: When did you decide to get a tattoo? What inspired you?

A: I decided to get it about a year before I actually got it. I got it In September of 2016. I knew that It needed to be small because I want to be an actor so it had to be concealable . Someone I know has one similar– on their finger– so that inspired me.


Q:   How old were you when you got your tattoo? Where did you get it?

A: I got it the day after I turned 18. I went to New York City with my sister and got it done there. I decided to get the tattoo on the inner corner of my elbow.


Q:How did you pick your tattoo and what does it mean to you?

A: I saw one similar on my friend’s older sister so that’s essentially how I picked it. My tattoo is the three stars from the corner of the Harry Potter books. I picked it because Harry Potter means a lot to me. I had a really hard time for a lot of middle school. My parents were in a really bad place and I didn’t have a lot of friends, so Harry Potter got me though. Those books were my solace. I wanted it to be subtle so I chose the three stars instead of something big like the deathly hallows.


Q: What do you think your tattoo says about you?

A: That I’m nerdy enough about a book series to literally ink it on my body. In a way, I feel like it also represents me as it is little & subtle. I don’t really have a huge personality; I’m kind of subtle and chill most of the time.

Q:  How do others react to your tattoo?

A: All the younger kids are always in awe and ask if it is real. Kids my age are usually interested and think it’s really cool. My dad and mom were horrified at first. After my mom screamed about it for a few minutes, she calmed down. A lot of older people think it’s great that it’s so small.


Q: Do you have any regrets?

A: I really don’t. I was going to get it in a different place but I’m really glad I didn’t. I’m glad that it is in a place where other people can see it. I really love it.
